Subject: [MASSBIRD] Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary - 4/19/17
I recorded the following this afternoon (4/19/17) at the Broad Meadow Brook
Wildlife Sanctuary in Worcester. I began by walking the Troiano/Heron Pond
Loop and then went to the Frog Pond Trail and along Wilson Swamp.

Canada Goose (11 - 6 at Heron Pond and 5 at Wilson's Swamp)
Wood Duck (2 males and 1 female together at Heron Pond)
Mallard (11 - including pair at Frog Pond; the female was very dark, so
probably a hybrid)

tree at Heron Pond, as one bird brought nesting material to a partially
built nest adjacent to the previous nest)
